This Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen review is about uncovering and dissecting everything there is worth knowing about this supplement.
To do that properly, we will first look at the promotional materials and promised benefits. That we will transition into dissecting the active ingredients. And then, also, the inactive ones (additives) as well. This we will conclude with a look at the customer reviews while also, throughout the article, discussing quality and price aspects.
The goal here is to create an article so thorough that there would not be a need for you to ever look at another supplement review for this specific thing. Therefore, if there is a section or aspect I haven’t covered but you’re interested in, let me know. And I’ll add that as well.
Promotional Materials Kind Of Imply This To Be The Perfect Keto Collagen
According to the manufacturer, Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen is a “powerful combination of our high-demand beef collagen with MCTs [that] provides an easy-to-mix powder that fuels not only healthy, elastic skin, but benefits joint and gut health, too.” Per their words, “Keto Collagen doesn’t stop there; coconut-derived MCTs support your body in maintaining a healthy weight, too. And with a smooth, creamy texture, this is one collagen product you’ll love using” [R].
So, to kind of summarize it, it’s pretty much the perfect Keto Collagen supplement. With which come a number of awesome gains. Which, as far as the promised ones, the previous section covers entirely.
As for the product page, it’s a plethora of information. Granted, it’s not as overwhelming as what we get with BioTrust Ageless Multi Collagen (review) or Organixx Collagen (review). But still, a pretty elaborate one borderlining this notion of too much. But, as far as I can tell, Ancient Nutrition’s product pages are all kind of that way [R, R].
It’s kind of the same way that they are all marketing heavy. A discount and free shipping if we subscribe to monthly shipments. It’s also supposedly discounted by default (to show for us getting a better deal). There are also the customer reviews and a 60-day money-back guarantee.
So, all that sounds good. But is the Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen actually worth the buck?
Ingredients | Many Options, Slightly Different Contents
When it comes to the Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen, there are actually a whole bunch of different flavors that we can get it in. I mean, as far as I can tell, Dr. Axe has, for sure, not seen fit to have just the unflavored version of things. There are also Vanilla, Chocolate, and Golden Chai, as well as a half-sized unflavored version and packets of that as well.
In the sections to follow, we’ll look at each one. We’ll look at their beneficial ingredients, potential benefits, and additives. All to provide a completely thorough look.
Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Unflavored Review – Their Not Ideal Baseline
The Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Unflavored is kind of their main thing. It’s the flagship supplement of the brand that every other supplement of the brand builds upon. It’s kind of the baseline of things for them [R].
Per serving (one scoop), it offers 18 grams of the KetoCOLLAGEN Blend which is simply a fusion of Pasture-Raised, Hydrolyzed Bovine Hide Collagen Peptides and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) sourced from Coconut. And we get about 30 servings per container.
Given the macronutrient composition shown on the label, it seems that this thing provides about 14 grams of Collagen, about 3 grams of MCT, and 1 gram of Acacia Fiber (which kind of works like an additive).
So, the Collagen amount is decent and from that perspective alone it certainly has the potential to deliver on those promised gains. What I’m not so fond of is that they don’t claim that Collagen to be Grass-Fed. Because it’s not that rare that even Pasture-Raised animals get fed with corn. Which is not ideal if we want maximum benefit out of the protein.
As for the MCT aspect, sourcing it from Coconut, I believe is the best way. However, it’s not that abundant here. And thus, the way I see it, it will probably be quite limited to what it can offer. It would definitely be the much better option to forgo this frivolous attempt of MCT and pick a proper standalone one like the Nature’s Way MCT Oil (review) or the Onnit MCT Oil (review). Such would be infinitely better.
As for the Acacia Fiber, it’s the only additive here in the Unflavored version of the Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen. In of itself, it’s something I see as a beneficial ingredient. As discussed, there’s likely not a lot of it but it can contribute to gut health, as well as promote weight loss.
Overall, I have to say though, this Dr. Axe’s Keto Collagen does not feel like ideal Keto and Collagen fusion. At least I feel that’s true purely from the ingredient perspective.
Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Vanilla Review – It May Look Promising
As you can expect, the Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Vanilla version doesn’t reinvent the wheel (at least so it superficially seems). Instead, it kind of just builds on that same foundation that the Unflavored version lays out [R].
So, per serving (one scoop) this too offers 18 grams of the KetoCollagen Blend which consists of Pasture-Raised, Hydrolyzed Bovine Hide Collagen Peptides and MCT sourced from Coconut. With this, there are only 22 servings per container. But that’s not the only change.
Again, judging by the macronutrient contents shown on the label, it isn’t likely about 14 grams of Collagen and 3 grams of MCT anymore. Instead, it’s more about 11 grams of Collagen and 6 grams of MCT, leaving a bit more than 1 gram for all other ingredients.
As far as Collagen and MCT contents, I see it as an improvement. I mean, 11 grams of the former is plenty and 6 grams of the latter is definitely better. And so, personally, I would prefer this over the Unflavored version of Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen. However, I still believe a standalone MCT would be a much better choice.
As for all the other ingredients, as you’d expect, it’s no longer just Acacia Fiber. Now, it’s also Natural Hazelnut Flavor with Other Natural Flavor (whatever that is), Natural Vanilla Flavor with Other Natural Flavor (we see that very vague thing, again), and Stevia Leaf extract.
The very last one I don’t ever mind. It’s a natural sweetener that can actually help health instead of undermining it. Whereas Natural Flavors are very dependant on the manufacturing quality embraced. Which with Ancient Nutrition is probably okay. But it’s mostly just their self-affirmed claims and some proof that other supplements have got third-party tested at least once [R].
So, nothing ideal the way I see it. They certainly don’t seem to devote as much attention to quality as something like the LiveWell Collagen Peptides (review) or Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (review).
Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Chocolate Review – More Antioxidants & Stuff
So, is the Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Chocolate more like the Vanilla version or the Unflavored one? It’s actually neither. Here is again another different KetoCOLLAGEN Blend’s composition [R].
So, with this, per serving (one scoop), the total amount of that blend is 18 grams. But this time given the macronutrient composition shown on the label, it’s likely that there are about 12 grams of Collagen and 6 grams of MCT. We get about 22 servings per container and one scoop is about 20.9 grams. Where the residue is additives.
Again, the total Collagen amounts are fine (still, not a fan of them not saying that this is from Grass-Fed cows), the MCT amounts – not so much; a separate MCT oil supplement would certainly do better. But the additives are where the whole kind of essence of difference lies.
Here we have Organic Cocoa, Organic Cinamon Bark, Natural Flavor, Acacia Fiber, and Stevia Leaf extract.
The first two are great antioxidants and can potentially bring other positives (if only there was more of them). The Natural Flavor is, again, probably fine. But I’m not a huge fan given that the transparency of the Dr. Axe’s brand in terms of quality is not that great. Whereas Acacia Fiber and Stevia Leaf to only be beneficial.
Overall, kind of the most promising option of all Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagens so far.
Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Golden Chai Review – Mostly Really Great
I guess, at this point, it’s fine to pretty much expect anything from the Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Golden Chai. What version of the KetoCOLLAGEN Blend will this thing be? It’s exactly like the Vanilla option. But with different additives [R].
So, per scoop (one serving), we get 18 grams of the Keto Blend. Which is likely comprised out of about 11 grams of Collagen and 6 grams of MCT oil. And similarly as will all flavored option of the brand, we get 22 such servings per container.
Collagen amounts are fine, MCT oil ones are not so much. Nothing has changed, I’m still not a fan of them claiming the Collagen to be just Pasture-Raised. Because that likely implies that the cows have likely not been Grass-Fed, just Corn-Fed. And that is not ideal if we want the most value and gains out of the protein.
As for the additives, this Golden Chai version goes with Organic Honey, Organic Turmeric Root, Organic Cinnamon Bark, Organic Ginger Root, Natural Flavor, Acacia Fiber, and Stevia Leaf extract.
All of which, except the Natural Flavor, certainly, are really good ingredients. Not that they will provide many benefits but to some limited amount maybe there can be something (because all will generally be low amounts here). Either way, those will not in any way burden our health. Just help in slight ways.
Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Half-Size & Packets Review – Just A Different Total
The Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen Half-Size and Packets edition both are the exactly same when it comes to the contents per serving if we compare it to the Unflavored version of the brand. The whole difference lies in the total volume we get per unit [R, R].
So, with the Half-Size, we get about 15 scoops per container which are exactly half of what the original offers. However, it’s about 3/5 of the price. Hence, it may be a fine option if this Ancient Nutrition wonder is something you’d like to try. But for the long-term use buying this over the original doesn’t make sense. It’s just more expensive.
As for the box of packets, it’s actually similar in some ways. Like the fact that it holds 15 packets which equals 15 servings per box. But it’s also different in many ways.
It’s not exactly the Unflavored thing. It’s something completely, and I stress, completely different.
So, instead of 18 grams of KetoCOLLAGEN Blend, it’s 10.2 grams. And we get Natural Vanilla Flavor, Natural Maple Flavor, Natural Rosemary Flavor, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Stevia Leaf extract, and Luo Guo Fruit extract. Or in other words, a bunch of flavors, some harmless and okay to consume gums for texture, as well as two of the natural and healthy sweeteners.
Yeah, personally, not a fan of the huge flavor aspect. But other than that looks decent. Apart from the price that is. It costs about 4/5 of what the original 18-gram-Collagen-plus-MCT one costs. And it’s half the servings per unit.
Or to paraphrase, pretty darn expensive.
Success Rates & Customer Reviews Are Pretty Great, Apart Chocolate Option
Now, what about the customer reviews for the Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen brand? How well have the supplements lived up to the expectation of their customers?
Well, if we look at just what can be found on each respective product page, it’s all overwhelmingly positive. Nothing new really. It’s what we typically find. Because, it’s not a secret, these help to sell. And thus, typically manufacturers are quite interested in what they are displaying on their website like we’ve seen it with Skinny Fit, Code Age, and a plethora of other brands.
So, naturally, to find the truth, I embraced all of the insight Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen reviews by every other legit source out there. And I can say, overall, it definitely does look very good so far.
Without a surprise, the Unflavored version was the most reviewed one. Out of the 175 ratings I found, 160 were positive (3-star, 4-star, 5-star) and only 15 were negative (1-star, 2-star). Hence, the global success rate of 91.4%.
As for the rest, they don’t really had enough feedback available, to say for sure. However, for the time being, it seems that Vanilla might have it better (above 93.2%), Chocolate has it significantly worse (above 78.0%), and people really like the Half-Size option (above 96.7%). As for the Golden Chai and Packets, I found only one review; so, definitely too early to even speculate.
As for the negative reviews in general, the utmost majority of them had to do with the taste. Which if we are being completely fair, is a very subjective matter. Some like it. Some don’t. I just how it goes. For almost anything consumable.
I Believe These Ones Are Of The Consider-Able Kind, Nothing Too Special
Generally speaking, I believe that Keto Collagen of Ancient Nutrition is a pretty decent Keto Collagen line-up. However, there are quite a few things I do not particularly like.
First, it’s the rather low MCT oil amounts. Personally, I would much rather prefer a separate supplement than wasting my time and money on this. Something like the Nature’s Way MCT Oil (full review) or Onnit MCT Oil (full review) should do great.
Second, I’m not a fan of the notion of not Grass-Fed Collagen, only Pasture-Raised. I don’t think that’s the best or even just the most beneficial approach.
Third, I’m not a fan of the somewhat lack of transparency when it comes to the quality of the supplements. It’s probably fine when it comes to this particular brand. But I would still want to hold them to the higher standard. And it seems they aren’t quite doing that. At least they’re not 100% open about it.
So, I believe when it comes to these Keto Collagen supplements, it’s fine to consider them. However, I would not shortlist them or just in general recommend getting them.
If you want to do Keto and Collagen properly, get one of those MCT oil supplements mentioned above and couple that with something like the LiveWell Collagen Peptides (full review with a summary) which is something that I myself highly prefer. Alternatively, the Vital Proteins ones (full review) can work great as well.
Other than that, I hope this Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen review helped you find the information you were looking for. But if not, definitely let me know in the comments on how I could further improve it.
If you have as much as 15-30 seconds to spare, even one line in the comments helps a ton and will be highly and sincerely appreciated.
See you in another article!
Cheers, Stay Healthy & Have a Great One!
